Timothy Taylors Landlord is here


The not so tiny Tim

If you want to try one of the best beers ever brewed, get down the Prince quick. Landlord is a very special beer and it won’t last long.

Thinking back it was the first cask beer I ever drank! As a 17 year old schoolboy in Lancashire, I lied about my age and got a job working at The Ribblesdale Arms, just over the county border in Gisburn. It was the late seventies and cask ale was probably at one of its lowest point. We didn’t really appreciate how good Landlord was, we were just pleased to be drinking beer, any beer; but after work on a Friday night, we would have a couple of pints before heading off home or jumping in a mates car to go out for the night.

Fortunately Landlord is as good today as it always was. Which is more than can be said for that celebrated Lancashire beer of my formative years, Boddingtons. You would travel miles for a pint of Strangeway’s finest. Not any more.

Poor old Boddies!
